He has two new books but does Peter Corris still have what it takes to cut it as a writer on the mean streets of Sydney? Corris reckons the skills are still there, and he’s produced a new Cliff Hardy, Comeback, and Mad Dog, a non-fiction crime book to nail home the point. His writing future looks promising. Despite a stellar career across more genres than some people have had hot dinners, Corris may not be all he seems. The man to find out is Mark Dapin. The two men talk. Anything could happen.
